i am in process of replacing my 18-yr old HVAC system. the current system has never worked very well not properly cooling the 2nd floor. house is 2,500 sq ft. (1,500 1st floor, 1,000 2nd fl) so bad we have put a window unit in 2nd floor master BR. i got 3 bids to replace entire system (furnance & air).

Bid #1: Lennox 90,000 BTU 93% efficiency furnace; 4ton 13 SEER AC = $4,000

Bid #2: Rheem: 105,000BTU 94% efficiency furnace; 3 1/2 ton 13 SEER AC = $6,000

Bid #3: Trane 100,000BTU 92.5% efficiency furnance; 4ton 14 SEER AC = $7,500

The Lennox bid#1 also recommended a $1,500 Honeywell zoning system be added.

Does anyone have thoughts on the value of a zoning system and/or what would be the best bid? a lot of variables for a lay person to figure out. thanks in advance.
